Mr. Galvan was a great man, friend, dad, husband and Grandpa. He will be sadly missed by many. He lived a good life just not long enough!! None of us are ever ready to let our loved ones go to heaven before us.. that's for sure! I'd like to offer a few words of comfort to the entire Galvan family.. think about all the happy times, fun times, all the hugs and kisses.. look in sky when you think of him,, God always finds ways to send us signals ... through his Angels, where they are all living in his precious, fruitful garden , wanting nothing and pain free.. no more suffering and no more struggles!! RIP Mr. Galvan Celina Bullock Tell my parents I miss them dearly and we will see each other and be together again... one day!!
